SIG Alert!

40 Weekdays of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."  

Day 16 – Luke 18.1, 6-8: Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.  . . . And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says.  And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night?  Will he keep putting them off?  I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly.”

  1. Pray that we will understand the importance and power of persevering prayer, and how through faith, patience, and perseverance we will receive what we are asking of God.
  2. Pray for the Shoreline Community Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Steve Hines, his wife Debra and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for the St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. Prentice Head III, his wife, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Palos Verdes Estates, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray for spiritual strength and wisdom to recognize and defeat the devil’s schemes, to put on the full armor of God, and to stand firm in our day.
